About School

St Patrick’s High School is located in Saddar Town, Karachi, Pakistan. The institution is the one of the oldest in the city and is held in high esteem across the globe. Established on May 6, 1861, it was founded and managed by the Society of Jesus for almost 75 years after which The Order of Friars Minor (Franciscans) took charge. The school was officially registered as a high school in 1867. Since 1950, it has been run by the diocesan clergy of the Archdiocese of Karachi. Our first Pakistani principal was Fr. Stephen Raymond, who was an Alumnus of the school.

Education at St. Patrick’s begins at ECCE (Early Childhood Care and Education) – Kindergarten – and carries on till Matriculate (HSC), or CAIE Advanced Level (Cambridge).

For over 150 years, we have served the people of the sub-continent and Pakistan by providing accessible education without discrimination. Patricians have made their mark all around the world, contributing in numerous ways to the progress and betterment of society. The School has produced well-known leaders and public figures, entrepreneurs, social workers, civil society leaders, top-class sportspeople and athletes, high-ranking officers in the Armed Forces, and politicians.

St. Patrick’s High School is indeed an institution, continuing to progressively educate without bias and instill a value-system that aims at elevating Pakistan to new heights around the globe.

The School is owned by the Roman Catholic Church (Archdiocese of Karachi) and managed by the Catholic Board of Education Karachi in Pakistan.

Vision & Mission


As a school of the Catholic Board of Education, Karachi, St. Patrick’s High School aspires to be:

An authentic Catholic Educational Community that celebrates and reflects ‘acting justly, loving tenderly and walking humbly with God’ (Micah 6:8).

A dynamic educational community for boys, young men and young women that maximises their potential to be both active contributors to and visionary voices within an ever-changing society.

An inclusive community, which continuously seeks to create and renew respectful, compassionate relationships by which all can experience what it means to be fully human.


St. Patrick’s High School has strong learning and academic traditions where every student is encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning in an environment that values knowledge, excellence, scholarship and innovation. It does this through:

Fostering personal worth and belonging, tolerance, compassion and generosity. Educating boys, young women and young men holistically in spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional, physical, cultural and social dimensions of life. Providing a safe and sustainable environment in which St. Patrick’s students can learn and live. Providing a curriculum that is challenging and develops the core competencies of the 21st century learners such as collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking and problem-solving using appropriate technology and engaging methodologies informed by good pedagogy. Fostering a personal responsibility for learning as a lifetime’s work. Recognising the family as the primary educators of our students and collaborate with parents for the development of their sons and daughters.

School Anthem

With glorious flag aloft we march
To knowledge and to truth
With wisdom’s grace
to light the face
Of all our bravest youth

St. Patrick, St. Patrick
Rise up with faith ablaze
With hope’s pure light
Disperse the night
And guide our separate ways.

With courage high and hearts aflame
We venture into life
In street and field
we boldly wield
Our honour, bright mid strife
